Super Meat Boy is currently basking in a warm critical reception ahead of its launch tomorrow. As a way of trying to entice a solid release for the brutally hard platformer, developer Team Meat has brokered a lower “price” with Microsoft, for October at least.

Super Meat Boy will launch on xbla ON SALE for 800 ms points! (that’s $10 bucks!) the sales for a limited time only and will go back up to our normal price of 1200 ms points in Nov.

The stated motivation: Team Meat wanted to show some love to their fans at Christmas, but figured a holiday price cut was a “kinda shitty thing to do to the fans who just bought it.”

Fair play. Check out some gameplay below.
